Kathy empowers staff to work collaboratively to make data-driven decisions for students. She places a strong emphasis on students’ individual strengths while ensuring that teachers assist students with lagging skills.

She sincerely cares for all students and works tirelessly to foster a comprehensive environment at Superior Middle School. Her mantra each morning during announcements has been, “Learn something and be nice”.
